Spent a week at Fatboys. We loved it! Great staff in a heavenly location. Cabin was clean and very comfortable. A week felt like a month in a good way as life slows down there. Can't wait to go back!!

A delightfully peaceful and beautiful part of the world. If you need a holiday to unwind and relax this is the perfect place to come.
We were well looked after by a fantastic team of staff from the moment we were picked up from the airport. They were all very friendly and accomodating.
It is not a luxury resort but it was a fantastic experience to stay in a more traditional island bungalow over the waters edge.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back one day.

Room tip: All the rooms are great.

We visited Fat Boys late July and loved the location and wonderful friendly staff. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable, however it did not meet our expectations which were not particularly high anyway. Hot water was on the blink as was wifi, infact no wifi in rooms it was only available in the restaurant /bar but it did not work there. Drinking water in room was provided in two plastic jugs unrefrigerated, coffee, tea and powdered milk were also provided. The restaurant/bar was in a lovely setting at the end of the jetty but the food was very average and over priced, melted cheese and tomato sauce was over everything we also waited over an hour for both lunch and dinner even if there were just a few diners. When the owner arrived for a holiday we mistakenly thought he was there to attend to much needed repairs etc but that wasn't to be the case.

We visited the place back in November 2014, spent there almost two weeks on spot and taking day trips out to scuba dive. The Solomons are in general A MAGICAL PLACE, where you can get your peace and relax like nowhere else. Would recommend to visit the Fatboy's, "happi ples, happi pipl!" ;)

Fat boys is a wonderful refuge from the pressures of life. Forget your mobile phone it probably won't work. This is as sustainable as an Eco Resort could possibly be. The food is good, (you may even grow tired of eating lobster). The staff are wonderful.

It is not a luxury resort, but it is quite comfortable.

I'll be going back!.

Room tip: There are two family units (almost like a semidetached house) that would provide for large family groups.
